Ghost Story

We had a party one weekend. Since most all of our friends are musicians, we had a big jam going. At one point during the evening when the guitar was being passed from person to person, a ghost-story theme came up. After a friend of mine played hers, she handed me the guitar and asked if I had one. I pulled out this song. After I was done, tears were rolling down my friends' faces. Yes, I sure know how to bring down a crowd. My good friend James asked if I'd put this song up on YouTube video. So, here it is...

Based on a true story...

LYRICS:
He takes her hand and they walk together
On the moonlit sand, waves crash beneath their feet
But he never turns to see or even question why
Her footprints never show

There's a table set for two but her chair is empty
He asks if she'll have sugar as he pours her cup of tea
Something must be wrong 'cause she don't say nothin'
But he just takes her hand and whispers to her

Dance with me my love
The stars will fall to meet us
The sun will rise to greet us
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

It's been one year since the day they wed
She's carrying his child, and the time is drawing near
I need a table just for two, it's our anniversary

Now everyone is staring
As the waiter pours the wine
Something must be wrong, but they don't say nothing
They just watch him as he dances alone

Dance with me my love
The stars will fall to meet us
The sun will rise to greet us
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

30 years before there was thunder, there was lightning
And the car kept spinning 'round and around
And when he came to he found her broken body lying face down in the mud
All was lost, but just as he swore, he never let her go

Dance
Oh, dance with me my love
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

Night is falling down
And her hand is growing cold
But he don't feel nothing
As he lies there alone
He just pulls her tight and whispers to her

Dance with me my love
The stars will fall to meet us
The sun will rise to greet us
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go
